Being Updated

At Health Solutions I strive very hard to be up to date with treatments and conditions and best practice. To keep upskilled I regularly attend Metagenics® seminars which occur three times a year and cover a wide range of topics. These seminars are hosted by a world-leader in Natural medicine and one of the main suppliers I deal with for nutritional products. The seminars are five hours face-to face. They always provide excellent material and support for practitioners which in turn means better service for my patient’s and better health outcomes. Recent topics have been: Modern Maladies – fatigue, stress, thyroid dysfunction, EMF pollution and sleep hygiene;  Allergy and reactivity; Clinical fatigue; Nutrigenomics; Microbiome latest research; Functional Psychiatry. The knowledge presented and research ensures that what I do in practice has a sound scientific basis.

Last year I attended a two day workshop on Cancer therapeutics hosted by an ACNEM, an Australasian based educational institution specifically for general practitioners. This workshop was an invaluable resource for the latest in understanding cancer and advanced natural methods for supporting patients. I have been able to put this knowledge into practice.

I have also completed a number of online courses and webinars on a diverse range of topics related to clinical practice, these are usually between one and ten hours in length. There are a number of online “places” that offer courses and materials for practitioners to keep abreast of current trends and practices. Several of the suppliers of the products that I regularly prescribe in clinic also offer various webinars from time to time, and I try to attend as many as possible.  All of these courses comprise what is known as Continuing education (CPE) hours for my registration as a Naturopath.

Our annual Naturopathic conference is a highlight of the year and always delivers top speakers in their fields where I gain yet more learning, which can be translated into better clinical practice and better patient outcomes.

Last year I also completed a certificate in Adult education and teaching, as part of my First Aid Instructor qualification. And I completed three more papers in the Health Science degree which I am hoping to finish this year! So it has been a busy time.

What all of this learning and upskilling means for you as a patient is the promise to deliver the best natural healthcare for you.

Homeobotanical Therapy

Homeobotanical Therapy is a novel fusion of herbal medicine and low potency homeopathy, developed right here in New Zealand. Homeobotanicals are loved by practitioners and patients alike, and have seen tens of thousands of successful cases in the thirty plus years since these amazing remedies were introduced.

Homeobotanicals are glycerated herbal tinctures which have been homeopathically potentised. By blending the various Homeobotanical remedies in the range, a perfectly balanced treatment is possible for every patient.

The remedies come as a range of concentrated herbal complexes which are personally blended together to make a unique individualised prescription. The system simply integrates the key areas that need addressing in the individual: what we call a mix and match approach.

For example, you may be experiencing liver dysfunction, gut dysbiosis and yeast overgrowth. In this case, the Homeobotanical remedy would be (Liver),(Bowel) and (Candida/digestion). Simplicity itself! The remedy is taken as a few drops three times daily daily.

There are forty-four concentrates in the Homeobotanical range, covering everything from infection to lactation, asthma to insomnia, eyes to skin, cognition to cramping.

The main actions of Homeobotanicals are at a cellular level. First, they purify the system by opening up the body’s own natural drainage channels, then the components of the selected herbs enhance assimilation of nutrients to speed healing and boost energy levels. This combined action is suitable for both acute and chronic conditions. The healing response is gentle and safe, being suitable for people of all ages.

A feature of Homeobotanical Therapy is the beautiful synergy between the remedies and other modalities, in particular nutritional supplements (vitamins and mineral formulae), and homeopathy. The remedies initiate the entire healing response and may by used to boost the clinical results of body therapies, body/mind techniques and/or orthodox practice, as well as any of the natural health therapies.

Homeobotanical Therapy has always been a core therapy for me which means I prescribe it for almost every client who sees me, it forms the basis of my clinical management of my client’s health needs. These clever little remedies have always worked for my client’s and that is why, after 20 years experience I continue to use them. They are effective, economical and easy to use.
